ohhhhh! this sounds like so much fun! I want to play! I will plan on doing:

- card = Done!
- LO = Done!
- Tag = Done!
- Inchie = Done!

My inchies and tag were made with doodlecharms.

I used sand paper for the sand. Does that and my little sun count for the twist?

Beachy Tag By Cpowife

Here are my inchies:

Here is my card made with doodlecharms:

Here is my LO using tear drop:

Beach Fun By Cpowife

Here is my jar:

Summer Jar By Cpowife

It didn't really come out like I wanted it to. The original plan was to put sand in the bottom and place a candle inside. I got worried that the adhesive might melt or come lose with the heat of the flame though so instead it will be a change jar for my desk.

It was so cool making this with the Cricut. I want to learn more. I have probably done things the hard way but the more I use it the more I like it.

Thanks to Lizzie for the inspiration to pull these photos out of the archive.

Ok, check one more off my list, the inchie.

Can you find it? LOL. I figured I'd put it in a layout so I wouldn't lose it.

Yeah, I finally created a lo!!! The cricut has been so fun to learn. I just love it. TFL!

Fourth Grade By Scrapingbliss

I would love to share this lo here. I've been playing with the wonderful features of the Cricut. I used the pens to draw and cut part of the title and then used it to cut cheetah felt board to cut the Wild Things and added stickers. I saw a sticker title similar to this in the store for 4.99 I bought the felt board for 99 cents with tons left for more zoo los.

TFL!

Where the Wild things are... By Scrapingbliss

Here is the next item from my list...a card. TFL!

Party Card By Scrapingbliss

Here is my recipe card, I don't like it but it was just for fun and to practice the cricut. I used grungeboard paper to cut the diecuts from and inked them. I used alcohol ink for the background.

TFL!

The Perfect Pina Colada By Scrapingbliss

Hi.. I finally have a LO completed this month..It's not a great one..but I love the picture..so it's all good..

I used my cricut to cut out the sunglasses and the sunshine... does the sun count as a "twist"?

Shades of Summer By Cwilliams1961

Hi Ladies!! Can you believe I finally finished a LO..???? I can't..it's been that kinda week.

I just love this pic of my ds! I used SCAL to cut the title, seahorses, palm tree, beach ball, and sun. I'm also in the August No Shopping challenge so I used up some old stickers and old paper..

Beach Baby By Cwilliams1961

Horay for Me!!! I finished my first ever card. Simple but cute. It has a white border, don't know if you can tell in the pic. I used my cricut to cut the letters.

For You By Cwilliams1961

I finally have another LO finished. I used my new expression to cut the title and lg butterfly then painted them with stickles. TFL!

Oh yeah, and this is my August lo! 4/5

August 1961 By Cwilliams1961

Yeah for me...two projects in one day! It's a record! Here is my 2nd card...Used my expression. TFL!

For You II By Cwilliams1961

I finished another lo of myself..only the 2nd one ever. I don't like my pics so I'm always the picture taker!

This one was taken when my dh & I were on vacation.

TFL!
About Me By Cwilliams1961

Here is another summer lo of my neice Rylee this summer. I'm not sure where this leaves me..but close I believe to my goal. I hope to say thanks in the next couple days for all the love posted in my gallery! Have a great evening and an even better Wednesday!

Yay!! Let me just say, Welcome Crystie to the Challenges! Trust me, you will quickly find, that you can't just pick 1!...There's always a ton of fun to be found here & all the ladies are really fun & great!

Also, as far as your question, it's totally up to you, how you complete the Challenge!...If you can get all the items into 1 project, that totally is fine & works great too!

You can pick just 1 category if you like, for example, Cards. You are more than welcome to create 5 Cricut-created Cards! However, if at all possible, if you ladies could make them each a little different (shape, color, words, etc.), then I say all the better!

1) Creativity!
2) Originality!
3) Inspiration!
4) Friendship, Fun & Love!
5) A Sense of Accomplishment!

PERFECT!!

I don't have that one, but because of that one specifically, I was inspired for this months theme!!...The cutouts are SO cute!!

Anyways, I figured that before I dare purchase (or rather justify) another cart, I better start using all the other ones that I have!!

LOL!



p.s. On that note, Thanks So Much Ladies for participating in this Challenge along with me!...We'll Plan To Have Lots Of Fun For Sure!!

I just bought a Cricut, Sunday, waiting for it to get here. Can't wait!!!! I think I would love to join this challenge and to learn how it works. I have the Life's a Beach cartridge coming with it.

I do have a question. I know ATC stands for Artist Trading Card but is what are they made of? Are they just for show are they used for something?

Yay Kim! How Fun & Congrats!

(Drools with envy over the coming cartridge! LOL!)

- Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card, small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. ~Wikepedia

- Artist Trading Cards (ATC's)

- I believe that they can be made out of whatever your heart desires, just as long as they are in keeping with the dimensions (especially in the case of a contests or serious swap).

- They can be used for both! Both for personal use and of course, as in the title, for trading!

p.s. By the way, I love to make em here & there. Eventually, I want to include each of them into my LO's! Meanwhile, I've yet to trade a single one!

More in care of ATC's...

- Just for fun - If you do a google search, you will quickly find hundreds of ATC samplers!...Usually, that's all it takes for me to become quickly inspired!

- Also, if interested, if you look over on the Swaps Board & Forum, you might be able to find upcoming ATC Swaps & Trades!

- Some people trade one-on-one, while others sign-up to mass produce 5-10 cards. It just all depends!...btw - I prefer the latter!

Thanks for adding me. I was so excited about it, I went by Michaels and they are having a sale on their carts. I got "Life is a Beach" cart for forty dollars. That's the first cart that I have bought outside of what came with the machine. I hope that was a good price.

Can't wait to meet everyone and see what is created.

Nope, Stacey!...Today, now, or as soon as you choose!



p.s. I always like to allow all of us just a little bit of extra time!...In my case, it always takes me a that bit of extra time, just to sort and get prepared! KWIM?

Oh I know I will do a layout and a ATC those are fun and my cousin is really good at making them. I can get some help from her.
A jar will be OK too. Still debating what else to make.

I went to M's today hoping to get the Life's a Beach cart. but they were out so I had to get a raincheck. I did get Sports Mania though and I have been wanting that one for awhile, so it wasn't a lost cause. lol

p.s. Sorry Lizzie that I wasn't on to answer your question, but you got it!

Answer - it can be anything. Anything at all. Extra large or something itty-bitty. It's all up to you and basically, we all just want to see those Cricuts fired up and being used!

HTH!

My Cricut should be here on Monday. It's in the same city with me and I can't stand it! LOL. Life's a Beach and Doodlebug Charms coms with it and Ms had their cartridges on sale so I bought the Tinker Bell one for half price. Now I just need the machine so I can get started.

I do have a question...how often should I plan on changing the mat? Do they run out fast?

Here's my first item, a layout:



and it grew to a second page:



It was so cool making this with the Cricut. I want to learn more. I have probably done things the hard way but the more I use it the more I like it.

Thanks to Lizzie for the inspiration to pull these photos out of the archive.

Besides having a guide & template, my thinking behind the challenge was...

Using the ones that we have now each month...

Will hopefully, justify the means of purchasing any future wish list carts!

LOL!
